Sorry if this isn't the right spot to post a request such as this. If there is a better location please let me know.
I bought this textbook with the understanding that the data dvd would accompany the book but it didn't. I was looking for some help in locating a copy of the data. If anyone has the data and would be willing to send it my way I'll provide a postage paid envelope and some aloha.
Did you buy the book used? If so, someone may have used the DVD that has 180-day trial of ArcGIS Desktop and the tutorial data. I recommend anyone buying the tutorial books for school to get them new and not used. If it's new, you can contact Esri Customer Service to see what they can do.
